It’s cool when you’re a guy and get envied by other guys in your school but when girls are envying your figure, that’s just very insulting. This sometimes even gets kids to be depressed because they think they lack in a lot of factors physically and that isn’t even right, Isn’t that what you think? Because there are always ways to alter how you look. Females have better and bigger options if you ask me. Makeup and Botox surgeries can help them out a lot. Guys don’t have that much options and in fact most of the teenage era they can’t even do anything about their physique because their parents don’t allow them to. Is there a reason for that? Well of course there is a reason for that and it is called growth stunt. It isn’t really a surprise and if you look closely you will realize how can weights stunt your growth. So today we’ll be explaining you the answer to many questions related to weight lifting.
The problem itself is pretty easy to understand if you ask me. I used to think the whole process must be hard to understand but it’s not hard at all. So, Let’s have a look at it. How exactly does growth stunt happen? For that you need to understand how people grow. Do you know how that happens? Ever looked at a hard bone and thought how this hard thing can grow? Well your bone isn’t always that tight and strong as when you’re in your growth phase the bone is actually pretty loose on both the ends to help them grow. The bone is pretty happy but it actually gets affected when gym gets into the picture. Let me clear out one thing that the bone doesn’t get affected that much if you gym like a normal person but when you go overboard on weight lifting, that’s when growth stunt happens. If you want to understand it in simple words, here it is. Don’t lift too much weight or your bones won’t be able to handle the pressure and eventually will stop your growth process.
Can weights stunt your growth?
You don’t have to go too crazy about it though as research says that only 20% of the whole crowd that goes through this process gets affected but hey, what if you are one of those 20%? I grew up to be a gym instructor and every day I see hundreds of kids joining the gym to stay in shape and I advise every one of them to go for different sorts of exercises to avoid the growth stunt thing. So, if you’re a teenager and you’re going to join a gym make sure you talk to a gym instructor.
